Dear All

I have downloaded Scribus twice and installed in my MacBook Pro. It is a wonderful DTP software. It supports many languages, but not Urdu which is written in Arabic script. Mac OS X has excellent support for Urdu, and they have announced to make it even better in OS X Lion. Many word processors work wonderfully fro Urdu on the mac. Scrivener, Mellel and Nisus Express have total support of Urdu, of course not to speak of the free Bean, TextEdit and iTextExpress etc. But none is suitable for DTP, as Scribus is.

I wonder so small apps have total Urdu support, but the heavy-weight Scribus does not have this luxury for us. Could anyone do the good turn to a whole continent by adding full Unicode Urdu support  in Scribus? This will revolutionize Urdu DTP in South Asia.
